Firestone Walker releases Chocolate Cherry Stout in cans



Adding a new fall seasonal to their lineup, Firestone Walker Brewing announced today the release of Chocolate Cherry Stout in 12oz cans. The brand new recipe is part of Firestone’s ever-evolving line of seasonal stouts, this one brewed with cherries and cocoa nibs is now available.

More from a release:

“What sets this beer apart from our past stouts is the inclusion of cherries, which are added during the fermentation process,” said Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. “It was a no-brainer as a next step for us, because who doesn’t like a dark chocolate and cherry flavor combo?”

“We have a lot of experience in brewing with cocoa nibs as well as making cherry-infused beers at our Barrelworks wild ale cellar—but this is the first time we’ve brought it all together into a single beer,” Brynildson said.

The result is a quintessential seasonal stout offering subtle cherry fruit and chocolate-cocoa flavors with dark-roasted malt complexity and a rich, velvety mouthfeel.

Brynildson added that the creation of Chocolate Cherry Stout was partly inspired by a bit of personal nostalgia. 

“I was weaned on Bell’s Cherry Stout back when I was a college student, and I still hold that beer up as the benchmark of this style,” Brynildson said. “Chocolate Cherry Stout draws inspiration from that beer while folding in some California soul.”
